sleeve ho



Wow - this is a fast knit! I have reached the underarms. So the next step is to cast on a sleeve. I agree that a 9.5" cuff is too baggy for a 6" wrist. So I will be casting on with 3.25mm dpns which should give me a 7.5-8" cuff. Part way up the garter ribbing, I'll switch to 3.5mm needles.

I did that and it totally doesn't show. (I actually switched at the elbow, which is a good place to hide stuff.)

The sleeve is actually too big all the way up, not just at the cuff. You might want to keep the smaller needles until further up.
